Hey folks! We made a Twitter account a while ago but we weren't doing too many updates there. We're going to be making it more active and doing micro-updates to keep you guys in the loop as I know you're all hungry for how things are coming along on various levels. Twitter's an excellent platform for quick information, even when you're not at your computer playing Aetolia and one we're definitely looking to get the most out of.

You can follow us here at: https://twitter.com/AetolianDevs

(mind the dust, as I'll be fixing it up!)

    I pretty much never use twitter, but I like the concept of updates. Any chance you guys could embed the tweet stream in a section on the main homepage?

    I'll definitely look into it! On that same note, I encourage everyone to follow us. We'll be having some great fun down the road with Twitter for all our players. :smile:

    I'm sure you're aware, but you can set up cross-chat widgets to automatically post a twitter link when stuff gets posted on, say, the Aetolian tumblr page. I found that really useful back when I was actively writing my blog.

    Yeah, our forums are a little more rough around the edges (and just a little.. rough) for that, but the tumblr link would be nice to see and use!

    As a reminder, the drawing will be tonight shortly after the Howling. Make sure to follow up and retweet our latest message before the Howling if you haven't already! (when I get home from work--if it's a bit late, don't panic!)

    Also, as a side note, I noticed that some people were just copying and pasting what I posted and then you posted it yourself. Glance over this for a guide on how to retweet!

    @Haern Very useful, thank you. I just hit the retweet button. Didn't know I had other options.

    EDIT: Oh, you meant just copying and pasting the link into a tweet? I feel silly, then. Re-retweeted.

    Yeah, I just want to make sure everyone is kinda on the same page and not going, "but heeeey, I did this thing!" No worries!
  • MelanthaMelantha Member Posts: 119 ✭✭✭
    @Haern So you're saying "Auto retweet = bad. Manual retweet = good"? Because I can and will use ellipses to snip a tweet excerpt and retweet that with comments. But text speak is actively painful for me to write, if only from the teeth clenching.

    Nah, you're fine. I was referring to people not retweeting at all. :)
  • MelanthaMelantha Member Posts: 119 ✭✭✭
    Oh. Well, that's okay, then. Thanks again.

    And our next Twitter drawing has begun! It'll end on August 8th, so act quickly. :)

    Well that actually answers the question I was going to msg you earlier, @Haern, but couldn't cause muted >.> So we just manually retweet with our comments and stuff, and that'll get us entered into the contest?

    Yeah, that should be totally fine. I'm liking all the responses I'm seeing!

    See, I read it and didn't think it was a tease, but rather that something new got released! Boo! But yay! I am torn!
